How to change time view in dashboard graphs?

For the My Dashboard reports, it is showing Daily view only.  How do I change to Weekly or Monthly?

 

My site is relatively low traffic, so daily view isn't as helpful for trends as weekly/monthly.

 

Thanks.

Tyler -- What is the timeframe you've set in the upper right of the dashboard? Can do day, month, year, etc.

Ben,

My issue is that on the graphs, it shows the data for everyday, whereas I would like it to be for every week or month. Right now it is too spiky rather than showing a general trend. So, if I show data for the past month in the upper right timeframe selection, it still shows in the graphs by day, not by week, which would be more helpful...

You gotta edit your data source connection, in the field that you use as "DATE", change it to "MONTH (MM)".

 

Here's an example, it's in portuguese but I think you'll understand:

Hope this helps you out Smiley Happy

Thanks, but I don't see the "data source connection" settings you are referring to...

You have to click on the date Dimension and then "Create New Dimension" and edit this should load the screen that Michel screen grabbed with your Date name and a drop down to change to MM

Hey, 

 

i have the same Problem, i think the Workaround is to add a new dimension to your Datasource. 

Mark the Graph

click on the pen at datasource

click on the plus Button

Then you can add for example the formula: "month(INPUT Variabel with Date)"

 

Then you can change choose this dimension for the graph. The only Problem i got is, that if the Period is longer than a year this dosn't work. Can anybody help?
